(figures in Canadian dollars)

Frontline Gold Corporation (TSX VENTURE:FGC) (the "Company" or "Frontline") is pleased to announce that it expects to close the second tranche (the "Offering") of its private placement of units ("Units") and flow-through common shares ("Flow-Through Shares") on or about January 20, 2011. The Offering is being made on the same terms as the private placement which closed on December 23, 2010, with each Unit being offered at a price of $0.14 per Unit and each Flow-Through Share being offered at a price of $0.17 per Flow-Through Share. 

Each Unit is comprised of one common share and one-half of one common share purchase warrant (the "Warrants"). Each whole Warrant will entitle the holder thereof to acquire one common share of the Company until December 23, 2013. Each Warrant will be exercisable at a price of $0.18 per common share until December 23, 2012 and at a price of $0.20 per common share until December 23, 2013.

The Offering will be completed on a non-brokered basis. The Company may, in accordance with the rules of the TSX Venture Exchange, pay a finders' fee equal to up to 8% of the proceeds from the Offering in respect of the services of finders in introducing purchasers to the Company and the Company may also issue to certain finders non-transferable finders' warrants entitling the holders thereof to purchase such number of common shares of the Company as is equal to up to 8% of the number of Units and Flow-Through Shares attributable to such finders at an exercise price of $0.14 per common share until December 23, 2012.

All securities issued in connection with the Offering will be subject to a four month hold period.

In accordance with the rules of the TSX Venture Exchange, the Corporation may, before February 16, 2011, complete the Offering in respect of up to 5,674,055 Units and up to 4,191,824 Flow-Through Shares.

The net proceeds from the offering of Units will be used for exploration at the Company's Niaouleni property in Mali, working capital and general corporate purposes. The gross proceeds from the offering of Flow-Through Shares will be used to incur certain types of Canadian Exploration Expense ("CEE") which will qualify as "flow-through mining expenditures" as defined in the Income Tax Act (Canada) and the Company will renounce, for the 2011 taxation year, such CEE in favour of original purchasers of the Flow-Through Shares in an amount equal to the issue price for each Flow-Through Share.

The Offering is subject to the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange.

As previously announced, the Company completed the first tranche of the private placement on December 23, 2010, by issuing 22,897,945 Units and 3,161,176 Flow-Through Shares for aggregate gross proceeds of $3,743,112.
